Zac Ibrahim – Team GB – Recurve
Hi, I'm Zac Ibrahim, I am from Derbyshire, in England.
I first fell in love with archery in 2018 when I tried it at a medieval fayre at Haddon Hall, Derbyshire, which is close to where I live.
We discovered that there was an archery club, Derwent Bowmen, just a short distance away. I completed the beginners course and it went from there. When my coach emigrated to New Zealand, I was lucky enough to cross paths with a national coach, who, although based in Lichfield, agreed to coach me further. I have been working with him since August 2021. I have attended the National Talent Development Programme and have now earned my place on the GB Performance Academy, and have risen up the ranks to number 2 in the country for my age group. In December 2022, I was selected to shoot for England in the Junior Indoor Nationals, where I came second- representing my country was a great honour, and I am now working towards representing Team GB in international tournaments with the hope of bringing home medals! Always wearing my Artebo chest guard of course!
